My first deflasking!

My husband got me a flask of Brassavola nodosas for Christmas and they were finally ready to deflask. (Actually, I finally got the nerve to do it!) I think I did it right: pic 1 is the flask to the right and the prepared medium to the left; pic 2 is dunking open flask in warm water to get as many babies out as possible; pic 3 is where I had to break the flask to get the rest out; pic 4 – the babies are in a community pot; pic 5 – a nice shade/humidity hood ‘till they get acclimated to life outside the flask womb!! So excited – hope they make it!
